Elegant Mountain Farm Wedding – Rebekah & Cody

Rebekah and Cody met in Senior year of high school. They were participating in a fundraiser for a school club and dressed up as the cast of Frozen. Cody was Kristoff and Rebekah was Elsa. They changed the storyline of the movie with their love story with Kristoff marrying Elsa. For the proposal, they had a trip booked to Disney in December. Cody says that he knew it would be the perfect place to ask Rebekah to spend the rest of her life with him with their Frozen Disney background. “I waited until night when the fireworks were going off and the castle was lit up with a clip from frozen projected on it when I dropped to my knee to pop the big question. I believe I said something like, “Frozen says love is an open door so how about we open this new door in our lives together” and I pulled the ring out and tried to tell her everything I had planned but I was so nervous I just stuttered a lot before I finally found the words “will you marry me?””

The inspiration behind their wedding day branches off from their country roots as well as their Christian beliefs in God being the center point of marriage and ceremony. The theme was ‘Glam Country’. It was a mixture of rustic country with chandeliers, glitter, and glam. The colour palette was wine, navy, and blush. They did incorporate their religious beliefs with a family prayer during the ceremony as well as a cord of three strands ceremony.

Country weddings can be anything from a small backyard gathering to an elaborate barn gala. Each couple combining their individual tastes and combined likes into every detail of the day. In the case of this couple a hint of aviation, as the groom is a pilot and sweet country charm. Cody and Rebekah started planning their wedding day the intention was to use a grass airstrip on a private farm with gorgeous views of the Appalachian Mountains. With much dismay that fell through and left them with broken hearts and a feeling of defeat. Their family and the small community stepped in and a backup plan was devised. Adam and Morgan Burke of Arrow B Ranch in Jonesville, VA graciously allowed them to have their ceremony and reception on their farm. With the plan in place, their wedding day started with the bridal party getting ready at the Lee County Airport. This provided the aviation influence for Cody. Then the wedding party made their way to Aarow B for the ceremony. The transformation of the working barn into an elegant reception hall was as amazing as the mountain views making their wedding day memories more than they had ever anticipated. 

The majority of their wedding decor was from the decorator they hired. She incorporated a lot of colour-themed flowers, as well as glittery table cloths, chandeliers,  arbors, etc. They did have a few DIY decor items which included the benches used for seating as well as some wood signs they made. They used colour-themed flowers, made from the Grooms mother, for the bouquets and boutonnières. The decorator provided flowers for the centrepieces on some tables as well as on their cake. They did play an important role in emphasising and tying their cookies together at the wedding as well as the reception.

They personalised their day a little with the family group prayer. “That was our favorite part of the day. Having our parents come up and pray with us as a newly married couple was huge and very important to us. We also personalized our day for our wedding party with surprising and having mini introductions for them when they walked into the reception. They seemed to love it and I believe it was a huge hit with the crowd.”

Cody dressed in a navy suit, brown suspenders, brown dress shoes, airplane cuff links, white dress shirt, and a navy tie. The rest of his groomsmen wore navy dress pants, brown dress shoes, airplane cuff links, white dress shirts, brown suspenders, and a wine-coloured bow tie. The bride’s dress was chosen off of the one she fell in love with when trying on and looking in the mirror. She didn’t exactly have a particular look in mind; however, she was looking for modesty, elegance, and flow well. Her bridesmaids wore wine-coloured dresses – two different styles were worn, one style has a short sleeve with a slit up the leg with a shear low “v” on the front, the other style was a wine-coloured short sleeve with sparkles and a lace overlay.
